Primary Function

SET's primary function is laboratory soils testing for geotechnical engineering consultants, civil and environmental consultants; also for government agencies, contractors, private firms and homeowners. We have also done a considerable amount of strength testing(triaxial, dss, etc.) for the mining industry. The projects we have worked on have involved an extensive use of the SHANSEP method on fine tailings. For all our projects we provide quality geotechnical lab testing in a timely manner.
